The spa is a place to relax and rejuvenate. It is as great for our skin and our health as it is for stress and wellbeing. In a perfect world, we would all be able to treat ourselves to a quality spa visit whenever we needed, but for most of us the budget and the time are just not there.
The best way to avoid both issues is to bring the spa experience into your own home. When you do this you can reduce the cost of even high-quality skincare tools down to next to nothing. Always look at the cost-per-use when making big investments for your skin and wellbeing, and use this guide to create the ultimate at-home experience right at home:
Invest in Quality Skincare Tools
To enjoy at-home spa treatments at home you need more than just quality skincare products, you also deserve the tools that are sure to make a real difference. The tools you use will depend on what your skin needs. If your goal is hair removal, the product will be different than if you want skin tightening or wrinkle reduction. Though the best of these products can be expensive, there are ways to spread out the cost so that you can easily bring home a NuFACE Fix, for example, with a few easy, interest-free payments. The new after-pay payment scheme means that many of the top products that can actually help you save money over time (in comparison to clinic-based treatments) are well within reach.
Invest in a Smaller Skincare Routine
There are a few high-quality, effective ingredients that truly work. Retinol, vitamin C, AHA, BHA, and so on. You don’t need a 12 step skincare routine with rotating products. You need a few effective treatments that you can rely on. This can be changed depending on the season, but no matter what always remember that it is quality over quantity.
Treat Your Body with These Additions
There are many ways that you can treat your body. Start by upgrading your towels, and even investing in a high-quality bath robe and slippers. Get a steamer, and a great body moisturizer and even massager. These are indulgent gifts for yourself, but you can enjoy them again and again so the cost per use will be spread out until it’s affordable.
Upgrade Your Home Design
If you want to enjoy an at-home spa experience, then you need to upgrade your home’s design. If your bathroom has a window, then get moisture-friendly plants that love steam and high humidity to immediately balance and harmonize the room. There are many budget-friendly ways like this that you can use to upgrade the look of your space as well, so you are sure to enjoy the space that you are in.
Add Sound and Scent to the Space
Find a relaxing, soothing playlist of sounds (this could be white noise sounds, like the ocean, or a relaxing music playlist). Add on top of this playlist an aromatherapy solution.
This could be a candle, or a diffuser. Either way, you want the entire experience, so think sound, scent, sight, and touch.
